Whitchurch mayor to take part in Isle of Wight sailing race

Councillor Vince Bradbury, the outgoing mayor of Whitchurch, is to take part in the JP Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race, which takes place around the Isle of Wight this month.

He will join up with Dame Ellen MacArthur's team at the event - which will begin early in the morning on June 19th 2010 - to raise funds in support of his nephew, reports the Basingstoke Gazette.

Nathaniel Fletcher had suffered from a rare and aggressive form of cancer, clear cell sarcoma of tendons and aponeuroses, when he was just ten years old.

However, he fought the disease and will take his place alongside Mr Bradbury at the race, which spans 50 nautical miles around the Isle of Wight.

Councillor Bradbury said: "I am really looking forward to being able to help Nathaniel enjoy the day."

This year's JP Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race will begin at 05:00 BST and will be started by Dame Ellen herself.
